Spring Term

 

Welcome back to Year 4, 4CW and 4SB. Our  Year 4 team this year continues to be Mr Wilkinson, Mrs Barnett, Mrs Gilbert, Mrs Naheem, Mrs Khalil and Mrs Akhtar. We’re exciting to begin the new year and new term with you!

 

This term in English, we will be studying Wind In The Willows, by the amazingly talented Kanneth Grahame. We will immerse ourselves in the text, meet some quirky characters and be inspired to write some of our very own pieces of work based on the story.

At the start of the term, we will be recapping our addition and subtraction strategies before moving on to look at multiplication and division. There will be lots of hands-on activities and we will even be going outside to do some of our activities too.

 

Our firsthistory unit topic will be The Anglo Saxons and we’re going to be exploring who they were and how they changed Britain. We will be doing some historical research during this unit and become real life historians. Take a look at the video to learn a little about the Anglo Saxons!

Year 4 pupils will also develop their scientific skills and knowledge in our Animals, including humans unit. They will conduct experiments and find out how our learning links to real life skills and careers, such as a vet or a dentist.

We will be having a huge push on learning times tables this year in Year 4. Why not head over to TT Rock Stars to practise your times table skills.
